Lovely Inn by the Sea
We loved the location. The Inn is very quaint, warm, friendly staff and excellent breakfast. The bathroom could us an update, but the room was wonderful. Comfortable bed and nice bedding along with a nice sitting area with an ocean view. Could hear the waves with the windows open.

Highly recommend the Colonial Terrace Inn
Beautiful gardens, comfortable accommodations, excellent service by staff, especially the woman working the front desk during the day, who was so friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay!

Amazing place
Everything was great! The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, the grounds were beautiful and the ocean was so close you could hear the waves crashing.

Very Good 8.0
Location is very good BUT...
The place is clean and comfortable. You will pay a high price for the location (a couple of minutes from the beach) and not the tiny room with a split sink and toilette that we got ($288/day). The tiny lobby/breakfast area has a weird distribution and when you are seated, the manager seats (in a classroom style) across of you, facing the tables (giving a feeling of being observed). Also, feels like they do not like to give small water bottles away. If you ask for 'too many' (2+) they seem to drag themselves to satisfy the request. Ridiculous...
